PBS | 8:00 pm

"Are you going to San Francisco? Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair." The summer of 1967 brought thousands of teens and young adults to San Francisco. However,as the documentary "Summer of Love" reveals, contrary to the song, it wasn’t all a "love-in there." By 1968, the culture of drugs and doing one’s own thing was showing its dark side. Local residents, police, politicians and former flower children weigh in here on their experiences.
